Right. :roll:LakotaPhoenix said:A stock Muskrat with the new 4.6, is not as fast as one would think, I've driven one I should know. Now let's also consider this, I know my car, I drive it to and sometimes past it's limits. The guy in the Muskrat may not know how to get his car to perform like I do. I could have probably waxed this guy in my Mom's Grand Marquis (with a 4.6) All I've got to say is this guy got sent to school.
The point to all of this is, racing is all about the driver and driver experience. I know when to shift my car, I know how far past 7k I can go before the rev limiter kicks in, and I know just how to time a traffic light.
I can't tell you if the Muskrat driver knows all of that or not. All I know is it can be done.
saw one hit a 15.3 with the sticker still in the window and 58 miles on the odo. one broken in with 30k miles or so could hit a 15.0 EASILY. they don't front. they're not shady. sorry i've been talkin' gangsta to my friends all night.James92Scort said:I had my ass handed to me by a stock 2003 Mustang V6.

1. wanna drop pounds off your car?? easy..take shit out.LakotaPhoenix said:Let me some what further explain the situations involved in the taking of a Mustang's lunch money....
Ok, now we all have the ability to kill or be killed when Mustangs are involved. Number one, Escorts are lighter in overall weight. Number two, Mustangs suffer from the same factory faults as our Escorts, they are nuttered while still on the facorty floor. Number three, a Mustang driver suffers from a condition called "I-know-what-I've-got-and-it's-more-than-you-got-itis" which makes them vounerable to prey upon. Four, drag racing stoplight to stoplight is never a true 1/4 mile. Five, make your intentions well known when pulling up next to the Mustang. The Mustang driver will be laughing so hard, they WILL miss shifts, they Will miss the light, and YOU WILL WIN! Now after you've shown what your Escort will do, you must be ready at the next light, because now the Mustang will know that your Escort is not a stock vehicle (one thing I don't think I've ever mentioned is that my ZX2 appears bone stock on the outside.) You M_U_S_T be ready to cut a perfect light next time out of the hole, and you better know when, and how to hit perfect shifts this cannot be stressed enough. You have to get ahead of the Mustang off the line, it is the only way to beat one, V6 V8 or hyped up I4.
Now here's a side note for you Rice-Boys out there, yeah you know who you are....
Have you tested your big wing for best aerodynamic effect? My wing is the stock one and I doubt it has any effect at all. And how much does that big ass after market wing weigh?
Did you weight out those big 18" or 20" wheels to check the difference in weight verses the factory ones?
How much does all of that extra stereo equipment weigh? Big amps and BIG woofers weigh in pretty heavy...and...Lowered pounds = higher speeds
Do you run pump gas? You best be running a 93 grade or higher octaine...I boost mine with a little 104+ Octaine booster. Does it work, helll how should I know, I can't afford to test every little thing on a Dyno, I go by feel and my feeling is yeah I get a little boost.
I think I will end it by saying this, it's like Ripley's....believe it or not!
all i can say is WOW. just because i speak the truth you think i am some stupid "R_I_C_E_B_O_Y". i been in this sport a long ass time and you my friend have alot to learn about the sport compact/customizing scene.LakotaPhoenix said:hehehehe I fart in your general direction! :twisted: YOU R_I_C_E_B_O_Y
I don't drive a mustang, and i'm laughing pretty hard. You cannot beat a new 4.6 mustang, even if he shifted directly from first to third. Stop trying to make us "ripley's believe it or not", because i know you can't, and you need to stop talking out of your ass.LakotaPhoenix said:.....
